Late­ly I have been hav­ing a recur­ring dream.  Actu­al­ly, it’s not the same dream, but it’s dream after dream after dream all fea­tur­ing the same sort of event.  In these dreams, I’m dri­ving my car and I run a red light.  Each time I do this, an acci­dent occurs.  Some­times the acci­dent involves my car and anoth­er, some­times only my car is involved (hit­ting a pole or run­ning off the road), and some­times only anoth­er car is involved.

I have no idea what this means and why I’m hav­ing this sort of dreams.  I am a care­ful dri­ver and I do not run red lights. 

That’s not true:  I DO have an idea of why I might be hav­ing these dreams.  In March my car was hit by some­one who ran a red light.  The dam­age was mere­ly cos­met­ic and no one was hurt, so I didn’t think much about it.  I am won­der­ing now if per­haps this has some­thing to do with the dreams.

    I’ve had recur­ring car dreams late­ly, too. In every one, there’s sud­den­ly a car stopped or parked in front of me that wasn’t there before, with no way for me to stop in time. The dream ends just before impact every time.

    I don’t dri­ve much at all any more, but when I do I’ve got­ten to be much more conservative–and ner­vous.
